Thank you, everyone, for your generous donations for Fisher House Long Beach. Our charity donation campaign has ended, and we will be presenting a check to Fisher House at our January Flagship Meeting.
We surpassed our goal of $1500!
Sharing your appreciation during the holidays for the military who serve and protect our nation’s freedom demonstrated the commitment we all have to our country’s bravest citizens. Others will get the help they need because of you.
What is Fisher House?
Fisher Houses provide military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. PMI-LA was working with Fisher House Southern California to collect donations specifically for the Fisher House located on the VA Long Beach Medical Center campus (opened in October 2016).
Fisher House Southern California is a nonprofit, all-volunteer collaborative effort of American Gold Star Mothers, the American Legion, Long Beach Rotary members, the Fisher House Foundation and other groups, organizations and individuals. Their mission is to help military families by supporting four Fisher Houses throughout Southern California, located at major military and VA medical centers. They helped raise over $3.0 million to build a new Fisher House on the VA Long Beach Medical center campus, and they also support other Fisher Houses at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and Naval Medical Center San Diego.
Why is Our Chapter Involved with Fisher House?
- Our members have spoken and would like our chapter to be more involved with the communities that we serve.
- We have a diverse set of members and many serving military and veterans are an integral part of our chapter.
- Military and veterans outreach is an integral part of our strategic plan.
“It’s about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year.
It’s about making sure they have the care they need
and the benefits that they’ve earned when they come home.”
– former elected official
